could the electric fan or thermal switch still be okay?

210 is not bad. Most cooling systems keep the coolant temp just below boiling which, in a 50/50 coolant mix with water, allows them to run 200-220 without a problem. Unless something else is giving you a problem, I would continue to run this way.
